Heavy curtains

I'm after some really good quality expensive looking heavy curtains for our living room. I want some kind of cream/putty colour with some kind of pattern running through it, preferably a red although the latter is not so important. It's the quality that matters and so far i haven't found what i want which is the type of curtain that looks glorious from outside the house too. Max budget 120 really but would pay more if necessary. Feel like I've tried everywhere including dunelm but they all feel so light. Any ideas?

If you want heavy looking they will need to be interlined and you ain't gonna get that for under £120 unless you make them yourself - even then you might struggle.

I'm willing to pay more but don't know where to go to buy them?!

Try natural curtain company they have some stylish fabrics but may cost a bit more depending on your measurements smile

John Lewis have always made our curtains. I think the last ones cost quite a lot more than £120 though; a pair for some floor length windows and a bay (three quarter length) cost about £2k iirc. Nice heavy fabric, I almost always ask JL to use Voyage fabrics as they're really good quality.
